Your understanding of "freedom of speech" is as bad as your understanding of the Establishment clause. Free speech only applies to the government.

Topix is a private entity, it cannot, by definition, infringe on your free speech rights even if it did do what you say, which it didn't.

Interesting-now you are an authority on "freedom of speech"

I could, just as easily, say:

Those who placed the monument at the Bradford County Florida courthouse, are private citizens, they cannot by definition, infringe on anyone's freedom of religion.

The citizens of Bradford county was exercising their constitutional right to "freedom of religion."

Citizens who have as much right as those who choose to wear spaghetti strainers on their heads.... to their religious beliefs.

You have no idea what my qualifications are in this field, though I would think by now you would begin to suspect. This isn't my first time at the rodeo.

You could say that, but can you back up your position with actual legal argument?

I'm thinking not. In fact, you are getting it all hilariously wrong.

What law school did you flunk out of? I know they teach better Constitutional Law than this at UF, not that you need a legal education to understand that this IS NOT, NEVER WAS AND NEVER WILL BE A FREE EXERCISE ISSUE...because they could have put the monument somewhere else, even possibly on public property. Instead, they chose, deliberately, to put it in a place that they KNEW was legally impermissible.

Again, they either ignored the county attorney's advice (which I have found to be an epidemic problem in all 67 counties in Florida), or less likely, the attorney went to the same "law school" as you did.

Your "legal analysis" is wrong, and if you stood up in a law school con-law class and said this, it would be a very unpleasant experience for you.

There is another old saying that fits for a reply to the above: You can ride out the same horse you rode in on.

Wow, what a brilliant counterargument.

Surely with sage legal advice from people like you, Bradford County will win their case!

LOL
